A Bromham man has won a new car after taking part in an Ant and Dec roadshow contest.

William Shippin, 28, an IT manager, won a Suzuki Swift when he went to the Ant and Dec’s Take Away on Tour road-show at the Metro Centre in Newcastle, on the day before he competed in the Great North Run.

Keen long-distance runner William, had already competed in a 5k race locally
as a warm-up, and continued onto the road-show wearing his competitor’s T-shirt.

He was one of a few selected from the 10,000 audience to answer questions in the lead up to the big give-away and his other prizes included vouchers and a TV.

William was handed the keys for his new car at Hilton Suzuki in Clapham – but he couldn’t drive the car away as he hasn’t yet passed his driving test!
